A few more thoughts on Terry Semel’s departure from Yahoo while I’m waiting for the call to start. They really are soft-selling this in a truly bizarro press release, with everyone supposed to walk away shiny and happy about Semel’s exit upstairs. I’m not convinced that, other than ego and severance, that’s really that smart an idea. Better to break with the recent past.
Whoops, call’s starting. See next post for more.
